About the organisation

We provide supported accommodation and community projects to those across Leicestershire. We strive to reconnect the most excluded and help people more from crisis to independence.


We have over 100 bed spaces for those that are homeless or at risk of homelessness providing support to move from crisis to independence, addressing any support needs and teaching independent living skills so they can secure accommodation and move on to positively contribute to their communities.


Our community day centres are for those that are rough-sleeping, socially isolated or vulnerable in their community. Providing open access support, affordable food and a safe warm space. Our day centres need no referral and are often filled with those that would otherwise struggle to financially manage for food and utilities.


We deliver health and wellbeing services, including an Emotional and Wellbeing team which provides 1 to 1 and group sessions with those experiencing poor mental health as well as a service user led allotment. The Allotment provides an outdoor therapeutic space, being in nature working in allotments can provide significant improvements in both self-esteem, mood and mental wellbeing. Physical Health sessions including our football team and weekly walks as well as our Clinical room which provides a nurse once a week for health checks, blood borne virus testing, STI testing, screenings, fibro-scanning. We support those who suffer with addictions in partnership with Turning Point through needle exchange services, harm reduction sessions and aftercare support following rehab.


Our service users are 18+ and face a multitude of problems, and barriers, often being the hardest to reach, lacking qualifications and education, often linked to the criminal justice system, care leavers, poor physical and mental health with 76% of our service users reporting struggling with mental health difficulties. Most people that use our services are economically deprived and suffer from food poverty with poor nutrition, lack of cooking facilities and hunger. Many people have debts and are unable to budget and manage their money.
